well, the picture’s new for one. Like it? I definitely like it. I’m done with snow. Two, Dianne and I are still accepting submissions for our First Impressions Post, coming March 1st. Three, we’ve got a tiny little heat wave going on here in Maine, 43 degrees here yesterday, more of the same for today. Hurrah for melting! And four I think I may finally have figured out chapter six in namesake. It had to be revised. That was a given. But the way I was doing it proved to be a dead end. It just fell apart. Plus it forced me into an info dump. Have you ever had that happen? Anyway, I started it like this instead :
“It was a little before two when Arlen put her headset on, comfortable in her bed in the loft. Alice had gone off for the afternoon, which gave Arlen a certain amount of privacy – enough to risk doing something her parents had banned her from.”
Basically I decided to go back to the way I’d originally wrote it, but with a few additions. The info dump will come in the next chapter by which time I hope it will be more welcome. Does that make any sense at all?
So, how do you work around/through those little problems that crop up and stall you?
